Wage gap contributes to Tenn. poverty

For the Roane County News

A state-by-state analysis released for Equal Pay Day tomorrow reveals that a woman employed full time, year-round in Tennessee is typically paid just 82 cents for every dollar paid to a man – a yearly pay difference of $7,745.

That means Tennessee women lose a combined total of nearly $16 billion every year to the gender wage gap.
